Rationale

Project work undertaken by individuals is a central practice for Graduate positions in both flying and non-flying sectors of the Aviation industry. At the professional level project work routinely involves research in the sense that there are non-standard requirements to be met and non-standard problems to be overcome. This course requires the student to complete the project commenced in AVN3103 (Supervised Aviation Research Project Part 1), and to report the complete work AVN3103 (Supervised Aviation Research Project Part 1) and AVN3107 (Supervised Aviation Research Project Part 2 together) in the form of an academic research project.

Synopsis

Following satisfactory progress in AVN3103 (Supervised Aviation Research Project Part 1) in the preceding semester of offer, and with the continuing guidance of supervisor/s, the student will further develop skills spanning both the technical and non-technical dimensions of The Aviation Industry at the professional level. The student will study and replicate the rationale, style and format of the academic project and present the total project work (comprising AVN3103 Supervised Aviation Research Project Part 1 and AVN3107 Supervised Aviation Research Project Part 2) as a project written in a clear, logical, concise and accurate professional style.

Objectives

  1. take responsibility for a major individual technical/management task and execute it to an appropriate point of completion
  2. establish, manage and maintain appropriate interaction and reporting with the designated supervisor during all phases of a major technical/management task
